~* A Blogging Break *~

Dear friends, I always appreciate your visits and sweet words! I just wanted to let you know that I am taking a little bit of a blogging break. There are many things I need to do for my family and they need my undivided attention at this time. I hope to get my decorating done soon so I will be able to show you my Christmas decorating before the end of this year!
I decided to post a picture of the barn that was taken several weeks ago when we had snow. Although there are no horses housed in the barn at this time, there will be some coming to live there this spring...my dd is very excited about that!
Thank you for stopping by.

p.s. I promise that I will get back to my regular visiting and posting once we are into the new year!

~* A Christmas Version of Corinthians 13 *~


This poem was in our church bulletin last year and I thought it was so good that I had to share it with you!


*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*


If I decorate my house perfectly with plaid bows, strands of twinkling lights and shiny balls, but do not show love to my family, I am just another decorator.

If I slave away in the kitchen, baking Christmas cookies, preparing gourmet meals and arranging beautifully adorned table, but do not show love to my family, I am just another cook.

If I work in the soup kitchen, carol in the nursing homes and give all that I have to charity, but do not show love to my family, it profits me nothing.

If I trim the spruce with shimmering angels and crocheted snowflakes, attend a myriad of holiday parties and sing in the choir's cantata, but do not focus on Christ, I have missed the point.

Love stops cooking to hug the child.

Love sets aside the decorating to kiss the husband.

Love is kind, though harried and tired.

Love doesn't envy another's home that has coordinated china and table linens.

Love doesn't yell at the kids to get out of he way, but is thankful they are there to be in the way.

Love doesn't give only to those who are able to give in return, but rejoices in giving to those who can't.

Love bears all things, believes all things, hopes all things, endures all things.

Love never fails.

Video games will break, pearl necklaces will be lost, golf clubs will rust, but giving the gift of love will endure!
